Kingdom Roleplay I [The Eight Kingdoms of Orion]
Kingdom Roleplay I/The Eight Kingdoms of Orion

Looking for players interested in joining a game of nations. Players roleplay as the government of their empire and rather than a bloody death match like an average game we try too steer more towards Diplomacy and Governing. Almost like an intergalactic Civilization. Smile (though war isn't outlawed of course)

Anyone is welcome no matter their experience, as turns are generally 2 or 3 a day you'll have plenty of time to submit orders and analyze movements as well as conduct negotiations and deals with your neighbors. All I ask is you are dedicated to seeing the game through too it's end, and if something does come up where you can no longer play you warn us first.

[IMPORTANT]

This is NOT like other RPs, you need to follow the directions carefully, make sure you read EVERYTHING, this is the first RP of its kind and there are new rules. Thanks!

If you have any questions PM Testbox360

Special Rules:

Try too put Out of Character Chat (OCC) in parentheses when in game. Helps to differentiate whether you are saying something or your character is saying something.

No whispering to another empire until you make first contact with said empire.

If you are going to abandon game, please take the time to hit the quit button. We'll miss you, but at least we'll have an AI rather than a dead country.

No making public chat posts until your empire has researched exopolitics I.

Settings:

Casual Timer (24 Hours)
Massive Galaxy
Normal Age
Early Empire
Wormholes On
Space Monsters On
Specials On
Random Distribution- On
Tourney Leaders- [Please do not ban]

Players/Leader Title/Nation Name: (3 Open spots)

Cardshark103/Imperium Of Dorne
Tbirdguy1970/House Lothare of The Ashlands
Troy USAtb/Das großartig Königreich
Its Teemo/House Geargrind
Samandchesca/The Fifth Legacy
BdawgN/Kingdom of Hathford
Vanderlegion/(TBD)
Wilkob1/Rangers of Sparta

HOW TO JOIN:

If you'd like to join, follow this format and post it as a reply:

GC Name: (so you can be added to the match)
Kingdom Name: (what is your Kingdom called?)
Kingdom's Leader: (what is the name of your ruler?)
Bio/History: (The story behind your empire, how it came about, what's it's culture?)
Children of Ruler:
Bannerman: Each time you appoint a new Bannerman, it is required that you update your current list of Bannerman.

Bannerman=A bannerman is a vassal that owes military service to his lord under the feudalism of The Eight Kingdoms of Orion. A Bannerman would be a leader of a system and he would have his own Bannerman that would each own a Planet, with One planet being owned by the Masterly Lord.

From Most Powerful to least Powerful:

King->Lord Paramount->Masterly Lord->Minor Lord

[OBJECTIVE]
The Objective of your Kingdom is not to destroy all the other Kingdoms, but to Rule them all.

[Kingdom RP Rules]
-You must have Ships by Stardate [415.0] that has the name of your Lord Paramount and your children and Bannerman.
-A Ship built in a system owned by a Bannerman must have the Bannerman's acrynoms infront of the Ships name: Say the Bannerman's name is Roose Bolton; then the ship could/would be: [Bolton/RB] Interceptor
-Each Ruler has two children at the start; One Son and One Daughter. If your ruler dies, the Son will take his place. The Daughter is useful for securing alliances through marriage to the Son of another ruler. At random points in the game, the Game Master (The Host) will announce when a New child is born, you can choose its gender.
-When your Ruler's Flagship is killed, your Son takes over, and any children born afterwards will be his. If the Son dies after becoming Ruler or before becoming Ruler, then the Strongest Masterly Lord takes over, which you will then update your profile/bio on this thread.

-Everyone is Human, you can select an alien race if you think the ships look cool, but its Human RP only.


Thanks Troy for the Description that I modified!

RE: Kingdom Roleplay I [The Eight Kingdoms of Orion]
Das großartig Königreich von {insert homeworld name}

"Heil Zimmer! König aus die Sterne!"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GC Name: Troy USAtb
Kingdom Name: Das großartig Königreich
Kingdom's Leader: König Johanne Zimmer

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bio/History: A kingdom with a rich history of culture and interstellar-political sway, das Grand Kingdom seeks expansion of its power through diplomacy, power, and mercantilism. Der König seeks to project das Königreich's will throughout das galaxy using the lessons handed down through the patriarchy. If neither treaty nor trade are able to open friendly relations, a show of honorary force is always on the table. It was with such strategy that der Königsahen suceeded in establishing a long lasting dynasty over das Königreich's homeworld many generations ago. It is with the same ideas in mind that der König means to make das Königreich an intergalactic power. In this venture, he has invested far more than gold. Das großartig Königreich has begun construction of a new fleet to modernize the Königsmarine of yesteryears. Upon its flagship, resides the sole son of a man revered by his people for bringing victory. Das großartig Königreich has restructured its entire foreign ministry to be more adaptive and as responsive as ever. Within its offices, works the sole daughter of a man revered by his people for bringing prosperity. The birth of Königskind made the man more responsible to the masses, more pacifist to counter the trumpets of war, and more fair to neighbors abroad, but it far from stole the fire in his heart.

Das Tag hat für das Königreichsaufsteigen kömmen!

Note: Imperials speak with a mix of English and very broken German. Do not be alarmed if your ruler is unable to comprehend. Translations will be made available by the King's Foreign Ministry.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Children of Ruler: Ernst Zimmer (18) und Elsa Zimmer (18)
Bannerman: None

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Random Questions:
1. Will daughters require a ship, and if so, is that ship 'transfered' to an ally following a marriage?
2. Will we be using default humans whereas we all have the same racial, or custom?
3. Is there a rule against kingdoms allowing daughters to ascend the throne if there is no suitable male heir or if said heir is unable or unwishing to take the crown?


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Because what Kingdom doesn't need a battle anthem?

RE: Kingdom Roleplay I [The Eight Kingdoms of Orion]
GC Name: Its Teemo

Kingdom name: House Geargrind

Kingdom leader: Lord Kalisparen Geargrind

History/bio: Once upon a time, there was a planet with a whole mass of feuding cultures, noble houses, proud old empires and newly-fledging city-states. One little noble house called itself Geargrind. This name came from the fact that without the little house's finance, the gears of politics would grind to a halt. The little noble house happened to hold sway over an island rich in minerals and in precious materials; and also produced fine cultural works envied by the other powers. The little noble house leveraged its advantages for all they were worth. Lords after Lords were keen commercial minds, and slowly the other powers fell into the little noble house's debt, without noticing, for the little noble house stayed little and didn't build a grand new House on its island. Several centuries later, and oh! the little noble house owned most of the planet.

Or maybe... there was once a magnificent House of artificers, who made automata to serve the great and good of their world. But they grew disillusioned when their automata were abusen and forgotten, and when debts to their House Geargrind mounted, the proud House woke its foundries to produce automata for war, which levelled their enemies' palaces and slaughtered their armies, leaving the House rulers of a cowed world.

Or perhaps... there was in the basement of a great and noble House a fabulous machine, a vast mass of cogs and gears, which when oiled and cranked would spin and spin. And as the gears spun and spun, paper would be inked with letters by the final printing gear of the mechanism. This House relied on the miraculously accurate predictions of this mechanism, and obeyed it in all matters, leading their enemies and rivals to dub them House Geargrind for the sound made by the oracle machine.

The modern House Geargrind is notoriously secretive about its history. All that can be known without paying them for the knowledge is that they are an ancient and powerful banking clan, lending money and recording debts, and that their means of collecting on a debt are ruthless and violent. Go deeper into records of the House, and you will find rumours of a chamber under the House itself, which now sprawls over a whole continent of Geargrind's homeworld. Buy the old man talking to you in a bar a few drinks, and he'll whisper that in that chamber is an ageless machine which, although not at all intelligent and despite just being a chaotic mass of gears, appears to tell the House how best to play the Great Game of politics.

The House has two peculiarities. It doesn't practice primogeniture (the firstborn gets the throne), preferring to select a Lord or Lady based on merit. The House is blind to gender as far as this procedure is concerned. Secondly, the House's Bannermen can also attempt to take the Lordship - it is not limited to the last ruler's children.

Children of ruler: Zakharen Geargrind, Delaphine Geargrind.

Bannermen: Lord Fiscal Alotar Geargrind, who decides who the House will loan to. Lady Martial 'Brielle Geargrind, who handles the regrettable necessities of war. Lord Logistical Tarikk Geargrind, who has undergone a pioneering surgery to become paraconceptic: able to maintain multiple trains of thought, useful for a man who manages the House's supply and resource chains.

Anthem: Pachelbel, Canon in D: the rock version.
